The following inscription was 

written on a tombstone. 

"Where I am now 
Some day you'll be, 
Prepare for death 
And follow me." 

Somebody coming along read 
the verse and thought he would 
write a better one and so taking 
his pencil wrote on the back of 
the same stone, as follows. 

"Where you are, I wish you 

well; 
If in heaven or in h — 
As to follow, I'll not consent 
Till I know which way you
